About the Author

Heather helps professionals and firms become the Go-To-Expert. Unusually for someone with an Engineering Degree, she accidentally became a writer and used her knowledge on social media to write the current best-selling and award-winning book on networking, The FT Guide To Business Networking. (75 five star reviews on Amazon) People frequently talk about Heather as someone who really knows her stuff - which may be the reason she has, over the last decade, worked with over 100 partners, coached and trained over 1000 professionals at every level of the UK's most ambitious professional practices.

Recently referred to as 'one of the UK's most influential 'tweeters'', the UK's 'networking queen' and "Twitter royalty", Heather has built a very large network online, with over 9500 Twitter followers in the last 3 years. She blogs on the subject of referral generation using networking and social media for professional services, and other issues involving partners who want to grow their practice.

Heather, ACC CIPD MEng (oxon) Hons, is a graduate from Oxford University in Engineering Science. (This may explain the spelling and grammatical errors which her editor is always having to remove from her manuscripts!) Her early career was in supply chain management, working for Procter & Gamble and Tesco. Before, she took the plunge into business ownership, she spent five years working for BDO LLP, a UK top 6 accountancy practice. She is an associate credentialled coach with the ICF, a chartered manager with the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.

In her spare time, she is often found perfecting the perfect gluten and dairy free lemon drizzle cake, as well as scootering around flitwick with her two young children.

Firstly, thank you for popping by! Let me tell you a little bit more about myself. I'm still working on the fiction writing skills, so for now, the truth will need to do...

Most Engineering Graduates from Oxford University don't go on to write award-winning business books.

Or sustain a high profile career as a Writer, Executive Coach and International Professional Speaker.

That's exactly what happened to me after I wrote The FT Guide To Business Networking & The Go-To Expert, plus co-authoring (with Jo Larbie) 'How to make partner and still have a life'.

Being up for a challenge is a constant theme for me, which is probably why I love helping professionals become the Go-To Expert. When I am not writing I can found increasing my waist line with my homemade gluten and dairy free cakes, or trying to decrease it as a fully-paid up member of the crocked slow-running club.


1) Helping my clients add over £1 million of fees to their client portfolios in the last 12 months

2) Judging the British Accountancy Awards in 2011 and 2012

3) Helping two of my small firm clients win awards at the 2013 British Accountancy Awards.

4) Economia decided I was in the 2013, top 50 influencers on finance & business on social media.


My work splits into 2 distinct and different camps. I am either working with potential partners helping them build their personal and business case to get to partner. Or working with owners & potential partners of small (under 10 partners) accountancy, consultancy and legal firms helping them with:

1) Consistently generating good quality new clients, helping to profitably grow their practice without having to cold call.

2) Building a strong & capable management team in order for the practice owner to increase their income from the practice whilst working less hours

3) Creating the next set of future partners, so that the firm’s current partners can retire knowing they will be able to get their capital out of the firm

4) Helping business book authors grow their business through writing their own book.

I feature regularly in the national & trade press, e.g. FT, Guardian, Sunday Times, Managing Partner, Legal Week, Accountancy Age. My clients have included: Deloitte, KPMG, BDO, amongst others.

To book me to speak please contact David Stoch at Meerkat PR, on 020 8563 0182. For any other work related enquiries, contact me directly.
